Flash Player Support for WebOs to Stream video content from anywebsite

Recommended Posts

Hi,

LG webOS also needs Flash Player Support  to Stream video content from any website. So that if some apps are not available then  one can visit the website and stream contents directly from the webOS browser.

Thanks

Please see the many, many, many other posts on this issue.

Flash is never going to happen on webOS (or Samsung Tizen), Flash is as another poster put it 'already in its coffin'.

Adobe has officially said it is killing Flash in 2020, no one in their right mind at LG is going to waste time and money supporting a hideously out-dated piece of buggy bloaty security nightmare piece of software that has been superseded by other better, slimmer, securer software.

If the site you want to watch uses Flash contact the web-master and invite them in to the 21st century...  Hell they could even use Adobe Muse to create the site.   Oh hold on Adobe has just killed that off as well.  Do you see the theme on Adobe web products going on here?

It really is insane how much this gets asked, considering it's the exact same issue that people have been dealing with on their mobile devices for a decade and the answer has never changed.

    • Add Fox+ in the LG Content Store/ webOS

      Can you please make Fox+ available to the LG content store/ webOS. I have a LG 43UJ630V which is a 2017 model and I can't find it on their content store. I subscribed to Fox+ considering I could watch it on a big screen and not only on smart phone. I am very much disappointed that this limits me from watching it on my UHD TV. Subscription is wasted without seeing it on my big screens. We are now in 2019 guys! We are not moving backwards. Let us move forward and make Fox+ available to all subscribers.

    • Question: ZEE5 app unable to play any content

      I installed zee5, it launches but when I try to play any content it just keeps trying to load Infinitely.  I have a 40 mbps internet speed, that should not be a problem.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app but the problem continues.

      Even the WebOS browser doesn't support playing SONYLIV content due to lack of Flash support. 
      Strangely Chromecast also has issues.
